ISIT 1 | SI, Relationships and Self-regulation
Infancy and the two years beyond are known as ‘The 1001 critical days’. It is during this period that the infant develops the foundations for future learning, relationships and behaviour.
At birth, a newborn’s genetic and congenital make-up provides a base for their engagement style, based on the infant’s sensory profile. The way the infant is nurtured, their early relationships and goodness of fit between sensory processing and the environment, strongly influences the baby’s ability to self-regulate. Adaptive self-regulation is the foundation of most aspects of learning and function.
This course covers the basics of Sensory Integration – the development of the sensory systems in babies and what function and dysfunction looks like. You will then go on to understand the parent-infant relationship and how to nurture attachment. Self-regulation is explored and Infant Regulatory Disorders (IRD) understood in the context of sensory processing.
